Mary Gregory glass is distinguished by the white enamel painting of children in silhouette and dressed in typical Victorian 'Sunday Best' attire in some sort of out-door setting. They are usually playing some type of game like flying kites, blowing bubbles or bowling hoops. They are usually surrounded by some sort of foliage such as grasses, trees or ferns.

This wonderful tankard pitcher, circa 1890-1910, in clear, blown glass measures 14" in height, 5 3/4" across the base and 3 1/4" opening at the top trimmed in gold. The central motif is a young girl, holding a flower bud, walking in a garden setting of fern-like foliage, all in white enamel. The striking addition is two vines of blue forget-me-not flowers on either side of the central motif. The heavily enameled flowers in shades of blue with orange centers are nestled among slender leaves in variegated shades of green and brown. I feel this is a European piece, likely from Bohemia, today the Czech Republic. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; some wear on the gold trim around the top. Would serve as a fantastic flower vase.
